For this week's challenge I've done another page in my journal. I call MALE. The male figure is done in pastel, he's taken from Raphael's "Portrait of Bindo Altoviti. To me he represents the perfect picture of male youth and beauty. The background is pen and ink, & colored pencil. I've collaged a handmade paper half-circle. Used pen & ink and some rubber stamping, silver leaf and wire to embellish. Finally, I used alphabet beads to spell male.
